Thank you for posting these links Luigi, a good detailed overview of these models, I thoroughly watching all them, there's
certainly some nice features on both these superb arranger KB's.  I feel like a youngster in November waiting for xmas... ;D ;D

You're all very welcome! I own a 950 and was very much looking forward to comparing it with the 970. On paper and from the specs I saw it looks like the differences in terms of sound are in the way effects can be applied (and perhaps the number of stereo samples?). Plus, although there are a few more new styles, there are not so many to absolutely require an upgrade for me. I'm still discovering features and am very far from being proficient with my 950. So at this time I'm thinking I'll wait for the next TOTL arranger, Tyros 6 or however Yamaha decides to name it. I am curious about the ensemble function and I look forward to wrestling with S.Art 2. And the extended styles also will help!

Thanks again everyone,
Luigi

Thanks for the links. These videos show the major features in a very easy to understand language. We are in for a great show at Frankfurter Musikmesse 2016.

Luigi I doubt I'd be getting the 970 if I already had a 950,  as it's a superb arranger KB and though each model brings extra features one has to ask are those few extra features worth paying a premium for over what you already have, and I'm sure many 950 owners have recently pondered the same thing.

I'm upgrading from a cheaper keyboard to the 970, so the decision was easy to make, though it still took me a few days before I took the plunge and ordered it,  and I'm sure it will take me a while to find my way around it.  The 950 has a good screen,  where the ones I previously used were quite small,  so it was having the larger 7" colour screen that swung it for me, the extra features were a bonus too of course.  I'm in my early 70's so these days life's too short to be thinking shall I or won't I,  I knew I wanted something better, my difficulty was deciding between the 770 and the 970,  :-\  as the 770 is without doubt the better value out of the two,  but in the end decided soddit..it's only a few hundred more..so why not.   I'm 100% certain it will give me a lot more pleasure than those few earning nothing sat in the bank, and TBH that's the view I tend to take these days.  ;)

That's exactly my view on the matter, too, and I'm twice younger :) My boss uses to say that every Euro spared is a monument to a pleasure that hasn't been experienced. Thou it's good to have some money to fall back on. Where I live we use to say "white money spared for black days". I'm sure the English-speaking world has a similar proverb.

I appreciate the enthusiasm of the fellow members and wish everybody get their keyboard as soon as possible. I'll probably wait until Christmas when I'll get a tasty additional discount from our dealer. By then it will have been known if there will be extra content especially for the s970 that might make me change my mind and take the plunge. Exciting times, isn't it! One of the videos said 3rd party voices could be loaded into the keyboard. That is really an important selling point. Looking forward to those 3rd party voices,too!

Thanks For the Videos links  Luigi  :) :)
Textbook; going from a lesser type keyboard to the PSR S970 makes for an easier transfer I think.
Hey why wait; enjoy playing and the major upgrade !
Being that I went from such an experience to the S950 it makes it harder now to just upgrade to the S970
It certainly would have to be played to see just how much a dramatic difference we are talking about here.
If the S970 simply outstands the S950 then it makes the choice easier for the people who already have the S950 and are thinking about it a little.
Makes me think ;should I have waited just a little longer ??? probably not as its been a year and a half already since owning the S950 and I still haven't used all she can do.
Anyways the S970 is sort of like the s950 on steroids or so and has been working out a little  :D
There will always be newer keyboards with newer features and voices;Depends on how bad you want or need them.

Most of the relevant demos for the various models are made available on the main site in the lessons section.
Joe already has a couple of the demos available and will add them in time

Seems so very true these days!  A verse I learned a long time ago while in the military voices a similar theme:

"We squander health in search of wealth
We toil and struggle and save...
Then we squander wealth in search of health
And all we get...is a grave"

Enjoy your lives!  Music is a therapy of its own and it is made so much more enjoyable through these wonderful arrangers!  Can't wait to get the next Yamaha into my house! :)

I just bought a PSR S770 a few weeks ago. Loving the keyboard, but recently I have had an issue when playing in a style, the style volume gets louder or softer the heavier or lighter I play the keyboard. I did not have this issue the 1st couple of weeks. i am not sure if I accidentally hit something that would cause this to happen. Hoping there is not something wrong with the keyboard.

Glad to be a member of the forum,

Hello, My main gripes are:-
 1. They ALWAYS get an ultra professional player using ten fingers or more to demonstrate these kbds. Most of the people I know, myself included, only play one finger or two at the most, otherwise the voices get 'lost' in a cacophony of noise.
2. If I wanted a piano I would buy one, not a kbd. The first quarter of any demo is "how good is the piano!!!!"

Would like to see an average home player demonstrate the things then we would get a better idea of what WE could do.

Thanks for the post anyway (otherwise I would have nothing to gripe about  :) )
Regards, Denn.
